Separate your tasks by both “category” (i.e. groceries, work, home, school, personal, etc.) and also by “time allotted to complete” (i.e. long-term, weekly, daily, within the next hour, etc.). This will give you a better idea of what you should focus on first and will also break your unbearably long list into more manageable bite-size pieces. A list of five items appears much more doable than a list of 30. By breaking it down, we make it easier to build back up again.
